Purple Ruana for Christmas! This ruana is made from Texas cotton, novelty yarns and hand dyed silk ribbon. There is also a band of faceted beads in leno lace along one side.

This earth tones ruana is also Texas cotton and novelty yarns with ribbon. No beads on this one but it is a super long one, having been made as a special order for a tall person. The warp on this was 7 yards long and each panel before washing was 100 inches. It came together beautifully.

This sage chenille vest is one of the few things I have left in stock, maybe because it just came off the loom. It has been a busy Christmas season here and those who didn't get a special order in by August probably didn't get weavings for the holiday. Happy Solstice Blessings to you all.
